Today We Saw a Bald Eagle

It flew across the field next to our house and grabbed a small gray animal which was most likely a rabbit. If you ever get to see an eagle close up you know how large they are. And so graceful when they fly. We did feel bad for the rabbit, but this is part of nature.

There was also a hawk called a Northern Harrier hunting in the field who caught a mouse. And speaking of birds, every night we hear a pair of Great Horned Owls hoot back and forth. They sit on the roof of our house and hunt in the same field at night. These creatures make life seem so special and we feel really lucky to see them. These are not our own pics.
